This, my dear Fan, is the USS San Diego! Yes, indeed. A San Antonio Class amphibious transport dock, she is home-based right here in her name-sake city, and is also known as LPD-22.
The class's increased vehicle and substantial cargo carrying capacity will make it a key element of 21st century Amphibious Ready Groups, Expeditionary Strike Groups, or Joint task forces. The ships of the new class integrate the latest in shipbuilding and warfighting technologies to support current and future Marine Corps aircraft, and both air cushion or conventional landing craft.
The San Antonios are designed to be the most survivable amphibious ships ever put to sea [what contractor would ever advertise their ship design could be easily sunk?]. The design incorporates state-of-the-art self-defense capabilities; and includes facilities for Command and Control, Communications, Computers, and Intelligence (C4I); and reduced radar cross-section signature technologies. Reduced operational costs and an improved capability to incorporate technological advances over its 40-year service life are also essential design objectives. [we'll see how that pans out]
